ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the political developments in the Middle East. The eruption in Iran might result in a breakdown and massive realignment of forces. To the west, the negotiations between Egypt and Israel has induced an opposition from Baghdad in the form of an Arab League split over Egypt. Lebanon became the victim of failed communalism and Palestinian terrorism. The Iranian upheaval is so far not associated with Communist instigation. But even though the original problems are internal social, religious, and political ones, history teaches that when there is trouble in Iran the Russians won't be far behind.
